Artist Talk: Alec Finlay’s Manifesto for Urban Crofts


Commissioned by Push the Boat Out, Alec Finlay has composed a poetic manifesto on the importance of urban green space during the pandemic. With specific reference to the urban croft in Leith, it discusses how green space is integral to addressing pandemic politics, culture, and healing. The manifesto takes up the work of previous projects on disability access, urban rewilding, and minor walks published over the past three years. The final artwork consists of 20 tri-colour, hand-painted posters, produced using a risograph printer. Finlay's work contributes to a culture of recuperation. Hear him discuss this timely project and read from its poems in this artist talk.
